Carroll College Adding Saints Hockey Club

Posted: Updated:

Carroll College is excited to announce the addition of a new ice hockey club on campus beginning in the fall of 2015. Saints Hockey will be a co-ed ice hockey program open to all Carroll students.

“Hockey is a growing sport with a loyal following in Montana, the Northwest and around the world,” said Carroll College President Tom Evans. “Having personally taken up the sport myself since moving to Montana, I am delighted we can now offer our students the opportunity to continue their love and pursuit of ice hockey at Carroll.”

Saints Hockey will compete in the Mountain West Collegiate Hockey League (MWCHL), a conference within Division 2 of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). The current schools within the conference are Boise State University, Brigham Young University, University of Denver, Montana State University, Montana Tech, Utah State University, and Weber State University.

Club sports provide students with an additional outlet to pursue their talent and enthusiasm for a sport at the collegiate level while enjoying recreational and social fellowship. As a club sport, Saints Hockey is not funded through the Carroll Athletic Department. It will be the responsibility of the club members to finance the program through fees and sponsorships.

Carroll freshman, Cole Funseth, has been instrumental in getting the program off the ground. He currently serves as the Saints Hockey Club President. “The support and interest we have received for this new club has been phenomenal. I'm excited to be adding hockey to Carroll's extracurricular sports,” said Funseth.

Saints Hockey will begin practice and competition in the fall of 2015. They are currently in the process of hiring a head coach. Practices and home games will be played at the Helena Ice Arena.
